This conservation park is the last remaining lakefront marsh between Toronto and Burlington. While seeing vibrant fall colours in this unique setting, you can also discover wildlife including herons, deer, rabbits, beavers and foxes.

Kariya Park

Named after Mississauga’s sister city Kariya, Japan, Kariya Park at 3620 Kariya Dr. is a popular spot to take a casual stroll in the downtown core on the south side of Square One.

Kariya Park is known for its beautiful cherry blossoms but when the cherry season is over you can witness the gorgeous fall scenery in this tranquil downtown park. One of the many walking paths in Kariya Park takes you to a popular spot for photos as it offers up views of the pavilion, pond, and wildlife.
